I just finished Dear White People (tv show) on Netflix and it is soooooo good. I’m probably going to go back through and do an episode by episode breakdown. For now, though, what I want to say is that it was so wonderful. i really deeply connected to this show. It was amazing to watch a piece of work where I not only recognized myself in the story and the characters. But I recognized my friends and my experiences and my journey to self and identity.
It just reinforced the need for black creators and other creators of color writing about their communities with the kind of care and specificity that only members of those communities can bring.
Anyway when you get some time please check it out.
